3D scans to accompany British Museum spotlight tour

2021-12-29

Following the exhibition "Troy: myth and reality" shown at British Museum November 2019 to March 2020, it will travel to Reading, Surrey and Dundee from September 2021 to August 2022. The tour will be featuring 3D scans of objects that visitors can access through mobile devices in-situ or at home.Four objects from the exhibition were 3D scanned. The British Museum has collaborated with Sketchfab, a platform sharing 3D, virtual and augmented reality content, to provide close access to the objects. These include and Etruscan urn that portrays Helen, the Greek queen abducted by the Trojan prince Paris, and an Athenian amphora depicting Achilles exacting revenge on the Trojan prince Hector after the death of his lover Patroclus.“Following the success of the Troy exhibition at the British Museum, it is very gratifying to be able to bring an exciting selection of related objects to audiences around the UK thanks to the Museum’s National Programmes,” said Victoria Donnellan, the co-curator of the exhibition. “The ancient story of Helen and Achilles is a fascinating one and I’m so pleased we can portray the various facets of beauty and heroism through these rich objects, especially with the 3D offering."Thomas Flynn, the cultural heritage lead at Sketchfab, said: “This latest collaboration for Troy: beauty and heroism is a wonderful example of how online 3D can help cultural organisations reach and engage with national and international audiences in modern and forward-thinking ways.”Source | Museums AssociationAuthor | Rebecca Atkinson

Covid has improved disabled people’s engagement with museums, study finds

2021-12-23

Cultural development organization Screen South and Accentuate consultancy launched a new report that offers new insights into disabled people’s engagement with museums as both workers and audiences.The report, Curating for Change: Disabled People Leading in Museums, explores the current landscape of museum engagement for D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people following a consultation involving surveys, phone conversations and workshops within 170 disability-focused groups and individuals.A key finding was that almost all the consultation participants thought that the Covid pandemic had presented a positive opportunity in terms of flexible remote working, interview practices and digital engagement for audiences. For disabled museum workers, their flexible working requests are taken more seriously now when previously such requests had been denied. Working remotely online means lower costs of remote training, an easing of the monetary and physical burden of travel, which are to the benefit of disabled museum workers, who are more likely to be economically disadvantaged and impacted by poor access provision when traveling.As audiences, however, D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent individuals and groups noted a lack of representation within museum collections, exhibitions and events. Disability history, stories and collections are “rarely shared” in museums, and are often interpreted by non-disabled staff when included. Participants also expressed a desire to work more closely with museums to co-produce content and outputs.Accentuate also worked with 16 partner museums, including the Imperial War Museum and Museum of Liverpool. All museums showed interest in becoming part of a network of organizations supportive of disadvantaged staff and audiences. However, the consultation also identified some of the museums’ barriers to engage disabled people, such as "a lack of specialist contacts" and "a lack of understanding and/or skills to provide support".Other than providing survey results, the report also makes recommendations for museum to make their recruitment process more accessible to disabled people, and tips of working with disabled people as audiences, such as reaching out to local disabled people’s groups, valuing disabled people as experts, and considering how disability heritage narratives can be included in new exhibitions or events.Source | Museums AssociationAuthor | Francesca Collins

Can the arts help drive vaccinations? Yes, according to the CDC

2021-08-30

As Covid-19 cases continue to rise in the US, governments and health authorities are increasing their efforts to raise vaccination rates. Apart from issuing mandates and offering paid incentives, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is encouraging cross-sectors collaboration between health and culture.The agency has launched a comprehensive resource page for health departments seeking to partner with artists and arts organizations. The toolkit includes two field guides on developing sustainable and equitable programming, as well as a repository that includes public health practice examples that use arts and culture-based approaches to increase Covid-19 vaccine confidence.Nakul Talgeri, “Vaccines for Victory” (via Amplifier.org)How can art be an effective catalyst for immunization, especially when traditional messaging has fallen short? Part of it has to do with different forms of learning, says Jill Sonke, director of the UF Center for Arts in Medicine and senior adviser to the CDC’s Vaccine Confidence and Demand Team."The arts attract attention, they’re interesting, they facilitate experiences that are memorable and can convey information in ways that are not just more understandable, but more personally relevant — through narrative, characters, images, music, and cultural practices and traditions,” Sonke told Hyperallergic.Such approaches can be especially beneficial in communities where historical and ongoing injustices are driving distrust of vaccines. According to the field guides that Sonke helped author, these "culture-bearers" could facilitate opportunities for the groups to come together in a non-threatening way. "It’s not all about persuasion, it’s about people being given every opportunity to make their own decisions."Source | HyperallergicAuthor | Valentina Di Liscia

You can now report stolen art using Interpol’s new app

2021-07-02

A new mobile app launched by Interpol, the global criminal police organization, aims to help identify and track stolen art and cultural property. The ID-Art app, free to download from Apple Store and Google Play Store, provides real-time access to the agency’s Stolen Works of Art database, an international archive of more than 52,000 objects verified to be missing along with images, descriptions, and certified police reports.Sophie Calle, What Do You See? (Rembrandt, A Lady and Gentleman in Black) (detail), 2013. ©Sophie Calle / Artist Rights Society, New YorkUsers can browse objects reported stolen, such as Johannes Vermeer’s "The Concert" (1663-1666), stolen during the infamous Gardner Museum heist in 1990. They may also conduct reverse image searches with their own photos to determine whether a work they own or discover has shady provenance. They can upload and export objects for law enforcement in case of theft, and if there’s a natural disaster or conflict, they can also report cultural sites at risk to the Interpol.In April 2021, it was reported that two officers from Italy’s Carabinieri identified an ancient Roman marble stolen a decade ago from an archaeological site in Italy, during an off-duty tour in Brussel. Their suspicions were confirmed using Interpol’s database, and the statue was returned to Italy by Belgian authorities.Source | HyperallergicAuthor | Valentina Di Liscia

How the Museum of Chinese in America emerged from a fire and pandemic lockdown

2021-06-25

On an evening of January 2020, a five-alarm fire broke out at 70 Mulberry Street in New York, in a historic building in Chinatown that housed 85,000 objects in the collection of the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), a small institution located a few blocks away. The blaze posed an existential threat to the institution’s 40-year effort to document and preserve the experiences and achievements of people of Chinese descent in the United States, with photographs, textiles and garments, business signs, and movie posters among the many items endangered.In March, the museum staff completed the six-week-long retrieval process and discovered that 95 percent of the holdings had survived, despite some water damage. But then came the coronavirus lockdown, which could be disastrous for a small museum like MOCA, which lives by an annual budget of $2.8 million. Subtracting from hundreds of thousands of dollars in rent, it leaves little room for experimentation or expansion even in the good time.But the museum saw a silver lining in the fall of 2020, when they received a $3.1 million grant as part of the Ford Foundation’s America’s Cultural Treasures initiative, among 20 institutions across the US. According to MOCA’s president Nancy Yao Maasbach, they would use $100,000 from the grant for technical projects, such as revamp of its website, and the remaining $3 million for conservation of the objects harmed in the fire and offset in part the museum’s pandemic-related losses. The grant will also enable the museum to expand access to its educational programs digitally, so as to reach a national audience.Recently, the museum also formed a consortium with 28 other Chinese American historical museums around the US. While the museum industry in the US is still learning to tell local history, the partnership would create wonderful national repository of shared resources for exhibitions and other initiatives.The fire has already become a part of MOCA’s history, and as part of a partnership with Google Arts & Culture, the museum opened a virtual exhibition titled “Trial by Fire: The Race to Save 200 Years of Chinese American History” in January, one year after the blaze. The exhibition features news clips, photos, videos pulled from social media, and more records that trace the fire’s impact and the museum’s retrieval and recovery process. At the same time, the museum added images of more than 200 objects from its collection to the platform. In the future, when the health measures permit, the museum also hopes to have conservation students engage in hands-on work with fire-damaged items.In addition to new programs and other opportunities the America’s Cultural Treasures grant will afford, Maasbach and her team are making a pledge to remember the museum’s past struggles, resist tokenization, and advocate for under-recognized artists and cultural organizations.“I think our role is now to be responsible—I feel like a chosen one,” she said. “The fear I have is that we forget where we came from, and that’s something we’re holding each other accountable for. You’ve got to work harder to create equity.”Source | ARTnewsAuthor | Claire Selvin

Sign of the Times: Museums Become Vaccine Clinics

2021-06-18

During the COVID pandemic, many museums have stepped outside their comfort zones, becoming everything from food distributors to protest relief stations. Now, museums from around the world have started to offer their spaces as vaccination sites, joining the effort to finally mitigate the devastating effects of the pandemic. The transformation of museums into vaccine clinics not only showed a new change in the museum landscape characteristic of this special time, but also, with this socially responsible gesture, museums are involved into the narrative of COVID pandemic on a new level.American Museum of Natural HistoryNew York City gained an instant new hotspot when the American Museum of Natural History announced it would turn the underside of its famous blue whale model into a vaccine site, adorning the massive sea creature with a custom-made bandage fit to scale. All takers are also eligible for free admission to the museum’s galleries for them and up to three friends. Negro Leagues Baseball MuseumThe Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, has hosted a weekly vaccine clinic on its premises since March, in partnership with the Hy-Vee supermarket chain. The museum’s president Bob Kendrick said that he sees the clinic as “a sign of progress and optimism and hope,” the same values at the root of the story the museum tells. He hopes the clinic helps chip away at vaccine hesitancy in the Black community.Castello di RivoliContemporary art museum Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Italy, has repurposed an extended installation by artist Claudia Comte, featuring hypnotic black-and-white wall paintings and a lulling soundtrack by composer Egon Elliut, into a vaccination center run by local health authorities. The museum’s director, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, calls the exhibition a “perfect” backdrop for the unexpected activation.An installation by Claudia Comte, whose Castello di Rivoli exhibition became a makeshift vaccine clinic.

As its first public event after reopening, it features a sweeping COVID-themed exhibition, as well as a gallery made into a vaccine clinic. Its director Ian Blatchford said, "Uniquely, our museum can both tell the story of how vaccination has saved millions of lives, and also play a part in ensuring vaccines protect the nation from COVID-19."Source | American Alliance of MuseumsAuthor | Joseph O'Neill & Rachel Lee
